Jesus Christ Written and recorded by Woody Guthrie
C F C Jesus Christ was a man that traveled through the land G7 Hard working man and brave C F C He said to the rich give your goods to the poor G7 C So they laid Jesus Christ in His grave
F C Yes Jesus was a man a carpenter by hand G7 His followers true and brave C F C One dirty coward called Judas Iscariot G7 C Has laid poor Jesus in his grave
F C He went to the preacher he went to the sheriff G7 Told them all the same C F C Sell all of your jewelry and give it to the poor G7 C So they laid Jesus Christ in His grave
F C When Jesus come to town the working folks around G7 Believed what He did say C F C The bankers and the preachers they nailed Him on a cross G7 C And they laid Jesus Christ in His grave
F C Now the working people followed Him around G7 Sang and shouted gay C F C But the cops and the soldiers nailed Him in the air G7 C And they laid Jesus Christ in His grave
F C Well the people held their breath when they heard about His death G7 Everybody wondered why C F C It was the landlord and the soldiers that he hired G7 C That nailed Jesus Christ in the sky
F C This song was made in New York City G7 Of rich mans and preachers and slaves C F C If Jesus was to preach like He preached in Galilee G7 C They would lay Jesus Christ in His grave
